Stretton win away, Wrockites go close again
Stretton Anglesey are building up steam as they won away in Gameweek 5 of the Summit Garage Staffordshire Premier Bowls League. They beat Broomfield 9-3 as they went clear in 2nd place. Captain Paul Chamberlain “thought everyone played well for us to be fair, especially considering no one had been on the green before. We were 17 down after 4 before all the second four won. Conor Chamberlain was 20-9 down and won 20 (which earned him MVP).” Richard Worthington was best winner 10, while for the home side it was Dave Chilton 12, with Jon Blakeman getting MVP for his 16 win. Wrockwardine Wood came close to an away win as they just lost by just 4, which still pleased skipper Martin Gaut. “It was a really good effort from our team on a green that only two had played before. With Ian Delves left on at 16-17 across there was an outside chance of an away win. The man who beat Martin Williams played exceptionally well. For us, Ange Gaut dropped on a weight on a tricky mark to get a good win in (to be best winner 11). We’ve been close in all three of our away games so hopefully we can get over line on a couple of occasions through the season. There wasn’t much pace in the green, I reckon it would be really tricky if it had a bit.” Ian Delves got MVP for getting 16 while for the home side David Garner was MVP and best winner for his 13 win.
Woodfield are still sitting pretty at the top of the table after beating Short Heath Libs 8-2. Martin Orme was best winner 12 with Claire Pugh MVP after winning 16. Des Parson was best winner and MVP for the visitors. Langley kick started their season after beating Baldwin 9-1. David Buttery was best winner 12 while Paul Rolls was MVP for his 16 win. Lee Harvey was the only winner for the visitors, his 15 win gaining him MVP too. Sutton Park beat Willenhall Nordley 8-2, with captain David Sadler starring by winning 4 to be best winner and MVP. For the visitors it was Steve Bodley who was best winner but Mark Hall got MVP for getting 17.
Woodfield lead by 7 to Stretton Anglesey, who are 5 ahead of Sutton Park. Nick Newey and Stuart Jones are the only two players 5 out of 5.
